You can mug someone for less than 4k if you wish, but the maximum is 4k. Your /me command doesn't need to be exactly the same as the example, but it still needs to say that you are mugging them and the amount you are mugging them for.
Q: Why was I randomly weapon checked? A: Police jobs can weapon check who they want, whenever they want as long as they use /me. If you are a police job, you can type '/me weapon check, do not move or you will be arrested or killed' or something similar so you can weapon check them. Unlike the mugging rules, you can be weapon checked anywhere.
Q: How do I use the roll command? A: Type '/roll [NUMBER]' to roll. A number between 0 and the number you typed after the command will be chosen. For example, if I type '/roll 32' in chat, it will choose a random number between 1 and 32 and display it in chat, and will look similar to this:
[DICE] The Gamer Guy rolls a 27 (Max:32)

Q: Can I trade my SSRP items/cash for other games'/Steam's items? A: No, you can not trade, sell or buy items from other games with SSRP items/cash or vice versa.

Q: Can Mutants RDM? A: No, they can only RDM hobos or people inside the Police Department/Mines district or the Warehouse District. They can only attack someone in any other districts if they are a hobo, or the non-mutant attacks first. Mutants can not spawn kill, kill players in the mines or kill other mutants.
Q: What is the best weapon? A: It depends on your preferences, but one of the best is the PSG-1 which is a sniper rifle which deals huge amounts of damage. The L85 assault rifle is also very powerful as it can deal a lot of damage in a short amount of time, along with the SPAS12.
